Brexit: Hammond says PM’s demands ‘wreck’ chance of new deal – BBC News

Former Chancellor Philip Hammond has accused the PM of trying to wreck the chance of a new Brexit deal, by making demands the EU could never accept.

In a Times article, Mr Hammond said a no-deal Brexit would be “a betrayal” of the 2016 referendum result.

He told the BBC he was “confident” that Parliament “has the means” to express its opposition to a no-deal exit.

A No 10 source said the UK would leave on 31 October despite Mr Hammond’s “best efforts to the contrary”.
